Your body is God's temple. If you drink coffee I hope it is decaffeinated. Otherwise you are defiling the temple.

I think the older methods, in some cases, are better then modern ones.....like percolators.

And my cast iron cookware.......that stuff will outlive me!

Yeah, well GOD made us with caffeine receptors in our nervous systems...specific to the molecule...so please go take your false religious guilt somewhere else.


We do fresh pour-overs here, using Melitta no-2 filter holders per cup.

This morning was the second time I've ever roasted my own beans, using a Nesco roaster.



You don't even KNOW coffee until you roast your own beans.

If you're finding coffee grounds in your perc, just use a filter, or select a more coarse grind of coffee.

You can even use regular filters and just punch a hole in the middle.

I love my Keurig. I'm on my second cup right now and will drink two more.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1002113


I love my Keurig too! I've got the small one and I use those reusable pods that I got from the Dollar General store. No wasted coffee ever!

I bought an electric perc a few years ago because I always loved my mom's percolator coffee, but the one I got, which wasn't cheap, leaks the grounds into the water no matter how little I put in :(
 Quoting: INK3


You can get a filter for percolators, they are just a round disc shaped filter with a hole in the middle.
 Quoting: Lisa*Lisa


My Grandmother used to cut out pieces of cheesecloth to use as a perc filter. She could rinse & reuse it many times before cutting another. Cheaper than buying paper filters.

Re: How Do You Make Coffee? Percolator, Auto Drip, or French Press?
Tried many devices methods -

#1 set up

Coffee bean grinder, burr preferred, but even a cheap grinder works well. Current one cost $18. Target. Simple French press , stainless & clear glass beaker.

Grind beans shaking grinder to get better consistency.
"Good beans are critical"

Boil enough good water to preheat press & drinking vessels by rinsing.

Put coffee into press, plunge slightly, to ensure grinds submerged bellow water line.

Let coffee brew, when ready, plunge & serve...

Though the press must be rinsed after use it is the best device I have found, minimalist, robust & consistently produces good quality.

I make coffee with an ancient Kenmore coffee maker my dad gave me. I've had to disassemble and clean it a few times, but the thing keeps on going.

I like dark roast with a ton of cream and sugar, so I pretty much like being overpowered by the coffee taste as well as sugar.

Oh, and I've used distilled water for years and years...getting the most out of the beans without tap taint.


Then for some odd reason, one of the big bags we buy at Costco warned against it. Too funny. I cannot imagine why.


When people drink coffee I've made at home, they always say it is the best they ever had. (I know where better can be found, but at not less than $5 per cup...and my favorite coffeeshop is a five-hour drive to the UP in Michigan)


Anyone near Sault Ste. Marie is blessed to enjoy the Dancing Crane...but here in Detroit we are enjoying something of a coffee renaissance, no fewer than six new joints opened up in the past few years...and all are excellent.
